Thorell at the NAMM Show

We just got back from the NAMM show in Anaheim California. I displayed a new Wysteria with my great friends at La Bella. I also sponsored the Muriel Anderson All Star Guitar Night, where I donated one of my handmade Dreadnaughts for her charity auction. Frank played an amazing set which will be available to view on the truefire.com website very shortly. I also had John Sebastian, world renowned singer-songwriter of Lovin’ Spoonful fame, give 5 performances throughout the weekend on my Wysteria. It was so cool to hear his authentic gorgeous fingerstyle sound on a fine archtop. The performance was in the booth of a great amp maker, Burriss Amps.  He played with a little bit of edge, which gave the sound this gorgeous old school maxed out small gibson amp vibe to the archtop. There is nothing bluesier than that! I want a Burriss now, so I need you to buy a guitar so I can send the money straight to Bob Burriss…. Nate Wingfield also stopped by the booth and played for a good long set of tunes. Nate played with Sly and The Family Stone, and is just a killer Brazilian fingerstylist. It was a great weekend, and thanks to all of you who support what we do, your the best!
